DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Trader Joe’s fans, the moment has arrived.
Brooklyn’s much-anticipated second location of the popular grocery chain is opening this Friday, the company announced Wednesday.
“Please join Captain Stephanie and Crew for the Grand Opening Celebration!” the company said in the posting.
The large new Trader Joe’s will be located in the lower level of City Point’s retail complex, next to the building’s 26,000-square-foot food hall, Dekalb Market, which opened last weekend.
The opening, originally scheduled for fall of 2016, was delayed for several months due to construction at the huge City Point building, which also includes hundreds of apartments, a new Target, Century 21 department store and an outpost of the Austin-based theater chain, Alamo Drafthouse.
On Wednesday, an anonymous employee of the Court Street store who goes by Trader Broseph celebrated the news of the opening on Twitter:
On Friday, we will no longer be the only Trader Joe's in Brooklyn. Our new store opens at 9 AM in the City Point building!— Trader Broseph (@TraderJoesBK) June 21, 2017
The new Trader Joe’s is located at 445 Gold St.
